New Delhi: The Delhi Police has told the Home Ministry that it cannot register a case against former Supreme Court judge Justice AK Ganguly who has been accused of sexual harassment. The police say that the complainant in the case has so far refused to record her statement.

Justice Ganguly had been forced to resign as the West Bengal Human Rights Commission chief after the former law intern's allegations. The police say the woman has failed to join the probe despite repeated requests.

They also say that the material available in public domain so far is insufficient for the police to take up a case suo motu.

Justice Ganguly had been defiant on the sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by the law intern. He had hit out at the West Bengal government of hatching a conspiracy against him and blamed the Supreme Court for going out of its jurisdiction in accepting the complaint against him.

"I have not done anything to feel ashamed of. The allegations were made by the intern 11 months after the incident. This was organised to defame me. The West Bengal government was very uncomfortable with me as the WBHRC Chief," Justice Ganguly had said.
